    64bit apps do have some performance/system requirements increases over the 32bit versions. In this case you will find limited benefit from a 64bit version.

    Using the 32bit version I have extracted 1,400 images in less then 1 minute. A 64bit version may do it quicker, but does it really matter? It will take you a lot longer to review the extracted images!!!

    I am using the 64 bit one.

    There is an image format folder so I am using that.

    I can copy and load the pdf file fine.

    When I choose save image I get a popup with a jpeg pulldown menu.

    I click OK

    I get the standard popup save image folder

    but cannot save

    I'm confused what your actual issue is here. The screenshot you show displays the "Save As" window. You need to enter a name for the image in the "File name" field and then you can click "Save". Is this the "but cannot save" issue you're having?

    Are you running the pdfextract.bat file?

    Download the attachment from the first post.
    Extract is somewhere eg c:\users\donpaulo\pdfextract
    copy your pdf into the folder and rename it as z.pdf
    Double click the batch file

    Use windows files explorer to look for a newly created text file in that directory or in the directory when the original PDF was. If there are security issues a short message will be output to a text file.

    Colin, as a test I used this tool on "A Great Upheaval", a .pdf I downloaded from the DMs Guild. I "successfully" extracted 101 "images" from the .pdf as .ppm files. What are .ppm files? And why are they used? (A quick Googling of .ppm states that they are less than idea image files.) Also what do I open them with? Photoshop, paint.net, paint will not open them. Inkscape does, but the rendering looks questionable to me.

    Hi,

    Good question... before when I have extracted and ppm files have appeared they were ever so small so I assumed they were other data files and I never tried to open them - just deleted them leaving me with the image files.

    Do you have any other image files or just the ppm files?
